The dumpster gods were good to me. I have wanted some horses for a few years now but am always repelled at the prices of them both in stores and on craigslist. Last night's foray into a nearby construction dumpster provided me with a surprise! The legs were folded up so at first I had no idea what they were. It was just after dusk and hard to even see, but I saw one metal thing and pulled it out ~ fiddled with the legs which fold into the body and was off to search for its mate! So now I have two horses :) It was a delightful find and I had tod with me so I didn't have to lug them home by myself on the trail home.
Artwise I'm still working but have slowed down as the house owners are here and I get a little frozen sometimes. Going for lots of walks and planning my MA getaway either this week or next. Was looking into holyoke, ma as I'm seeing more mill studios for rent at a ridiculous price; after checking out the city on wikipedia I see its the poorest most crime ridden area in MA. Bummaluma. Tod and I keep thinking we dont want to live in MA because they force you to get medical insurance and we are more alternative in our healing modalities BUT it sure seems like that is an area to be near to have an art life going. New Hampshire seems a little dead in the water when I go to craigslist and look at artists/job/gigs. Maine has more going on but feels even more removed than Vermont. Haven't looked into upstate NY and CT seems too flat. I gotsta have me some mountains to hike if at all possible. We don't like flat. Picky us.
